The kids love their “Paranormal Activity” movies on Halloween, so this should go over well. Staying true to the franchise was a good choice and going backwards in time with each successive installment is downright brilliant. Horror movie sequels don’t keep going backwards, they keep going forward, getting crappier as they go, going backwards only as a gimmick.
“Paranormal Activity 3” has a lot going for it, and the whole VHS thing will either be clever or downright hilarious. Either way, it should bank some nice change this Halloween.
